I flew out to Dallas today for the Eclipse Board meeting tomorrow.
We have some tough problems to solve, so we decided to tackle them the American way. We headed out as a group to look for the right tools for the right job.
Some of the folks where familiar with the equipment and headed straight for the back room.
The rest of us watched and instructional video, complete with a legal disclaimer, which Janet was kind enough to review for us.
Then we were ready to roll. Check out Chris' technique, taking note of the spent cartridge flying out. Like me, he succumbed to peer pressure.
Tracy literally had a blast!
And Emma, who was laughing maniacally on the way to the range, has us all a little worried. But she was quite the marksman! See the bullet hole? Unfortunately I had to crop the rest of the bullet ridden target for political correctness. Suffice to say she was like a one woman war on terror.
Although I was very skeptical about the whole gun thing, it was quite thrilling to load my Glock 17 and fire off a few rounds; maybe even a bit too thrilling!
Check out the accuracy! This is the first time I've ever fired a gun!!
I took the bullet ridden target back with me. I blew its head off too. That really made my day! Thanks Doug for helping ensure the gun didn't rip by finger open, Todd for arranging this fun outing, and Mike for reminding me not to point the gun at him. It was an accident, really!
